APPLE’S SECRETIVE SELF-DRIVING-CAR PROJECT HITS A ROADBLOCK

APPLE’S SECRETIVE SELF-DRIVING-CAR PROJECT HITS A ROADBLOCK The tech giant has reportedly laid off dozens of employees amid a strategy “reboot” for Project Titan. The battle to build a self-driving car, the biggest, richest tech giants are falling behind. While Tesla and Uber are racing toward getting a fully autonomous vehicle to market—on Sunday Tesla announced a new update to its self-driving software, while Uber is expected to launch its first fleet of experimental self-driving cars in Pittsburgh any day...

Autonomous buses hit the road in Switzerland

Autonomous buses hit the road in Switzerland Switzerland has joined a growing number of places around the world exploring the potential of electric autonomous buses, with a pair of driverless shuttles now ferrying passengers around the city of Sion as part of a two-year trial. Other autonomous buses being tested out across the globe include the EZ10 in California and Singapore, the Navia also in Singapore, and the IBM-powered Olli in Washington DC that can even talk to its passengers en route. ...

Google driverless car division invents technology for automatically detecting police cars

Google driverless car division invents technology for automatically detecting police cars   Google is creating sensors that will enable its driverless cars to automatically detect police vehicles in the area, documents have indicated. Self-driving cars will be installed with technology that can identify approaching police cars and trigger an alert so that Google's vehicles can move out of the way or pull over to be questioned. In a US patent filing, the internet... [Lire la suite]

Semi-Autonomous Cars Compared! Tesla Model S vs. BMW 750i, Infiniti Q50S, and Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG

Semi-Autonomous Cars Compared! Tesla Model S vs. BMW 750i, Infiniti Q50S, and Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Autonomous driving—what the high-minded call artificial intelligence and what we call real brainlessness—may not be as vile as we originally feared. One DeLorean DMC-12 directed by a Stanford University engineering crew can perform perfect opposite-lock, tire-cooking, hands-off donuts at will for as long as the rubber lasts. Lead professor Chris Gerdes explained the rationale underlying this class project, timed to coincide with the... [Lire la suite]

Why Drones and Self-Driving Cars Make a Great Match

Why Drones and Self-Driving Cars Make a Great Match Drones and self-driving cars are two of the hottest topics in technology, and in some ways are made for each other. While autonomous cars can "see" all around them, their sensors are limited to a certain distance, whereas drones can scout obstacles and trouble far ahead.
